Practices worked at
Mr Simon Bridle specializes in hip and knee replacement surgery. He graduated in Medicine in London in 1981 and did his orthopaedic training there, with a specialist Fellowship in Adelaide, Australia. He was appointed as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at St George’s Hospital, London in 1994, with a specialist interest in hip and knee surgery, including primary replacements and revision surgery. He left his NHS post at St George’s in September 2016 after over 20 years, to focus on his private practice.
As well as performing a large number of primary hip and knee replacements, he has an interest in failed hip and knee implants and in particular the investigation and treatment of painful and infected hip and knee replacements. Simon helped set up and run the Complex Arthroplasty Unit at St George’s, treating patients referred to us by our colleagues with these problems. He has been involved in the treatment of a large number of these challenging cases over the years, with good results.
Simon was active in management, including roles as Lead for Orthopaedics, Clinical Director for Surgery and Clinical Director for Major Trauma. He was involved in the training of junior doctors and helped supervise a Senior Fellow at St George’s. He also helps run the Orthopaedic section of the annual Doctors Updates meeting.
